Christology
By

Rating
In this fully revised and updated second edition of his accessible account of systematic Christology, Gerald O'Collins continues to challenge the contemporary publishing trend for sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainline Christian beliefs. This book critically examines the best biblical and historical scholarship before tackling head-on some of the key questions of systematic Christology: does orthodox faith present Jesus the man as deficient and depersonalized? Is his sinlessness compatible with the exercise of a free human will? Does up-to-date exegesis challenge his virginal conception and personal resurrection? Can one reconcile Jesus' role as universal Saviour with the truth and values to be found in other religions? What should the feminist movement highlight in presenting Jesus? This integral Christology is built around the resurrection of the crucified Jesus, highlights love as the key to redemption, and proposes a synthesis of the divine presence through Jesus. Clear, balanced, and accessible, this book should be valued by any student reading systematic theology, anyone training for the ministry in all denominations, as well as interested general readers.

Reviews

Professor O'Collins is a distinguished modern theologian, whose work deserves the greatest respect...This is a volume for which all who are concerned with Christology will be grateful. * Journal of Theological Studies. * Gerald O'Collins ... has written a splendid introduction to Christology. No doubt the fruit of many years teaching and reflection it will quickly, I am sure, establish itself ... as a standard text-book. His historical survey, Old Testament to the modern day is masterful, and particularly strong up to Chalcedon ... It is certainly a book I will be encouraging students to buy. * New Directions * In an age of academic fragmentation and discipline (sub)specialization, rarely does someone dare a comprehensive statement in a major area of research. It is therefore refreshing to find a work such as this. The scope of O'Collins' Christological accounting is breathtaking ... Carefully and lucidly written, the book is appropriate for anyone interested in Christology. This is a mature book from a seasoned scholar on an important subject. * Choice * Review from previous edition He uses a wide-angled lens, and allows many aspects of the subject to come within his field of vision. The treatment throughout is orthodox and ecumenical ... the book's virtue is its assured combining of biblical material with questions in systematic theology. In more manageable compass than other books in the field, it offers what almost amounts to a textbook, at least of the biblical stuff. * Church Times *
